I don't see the current trend towards trade war provoking advancement so much as reminding everyone that they can no longer guarantee sovereignty and independence when they put their critical eggs in someone else's basket.

If you're in the US, check where they keep metric screws.
They have them in just about every hardware store in the US.

Re: Raspian Second Boot Hdmi Problem

Have you tested if it works when you plug in an HDMI monitor without the adapter? If it does, perhaps the adapter is not very good. If not, well, there is a different problem.

Re: PiDP-11 Retro Computer

Yes, indeed. When I was first exposed to computers in high school (we specialized in computers, something quite unusual back then, 1965-1968 in Slovakia), the computer system required a small building. Nowadays I carry more computing power in my pocket than that computer (Minsk-22) could do.

PiDP-11 Retro Computer

I just watched PiDP-11 Retro Computer Build , a very interesting Computerphile video about the PDP-11 emulator built from the RPi (mentioned in the January 2019 issue of MagPi, too). Too much soldering for my old fingers, but still an interesting video for anyone interested in what you can do with a...

we're talking about providing 3.3V though the header pin while everything else is NOT powered -- the raspberry doesn't get its main 5V input
You have lost me there. If the RPi does not get its main 5V input, where does the 3.3V output come from?

Re: Video recording software for Raspberry Pi 3 running Raspbian

Something like OBS or anything really. The problem with something like OBS is that it requires a lot of computing resources, which it has to share with whatever it is you are trying to record. And that either results in poor video quality, or poor performance of whatever processes you are recording...

Open a file with fopen(), then use fprintf() instead of printf(). And at the end, close the file with fclose().
